Roadtrip to Nashville with Chevy

Last week, our family had the incredible opportunity to roadtrip to Nashville with Chevrolet for the CMA Fest.

We drove a brand new 2018 Chevy Equinox from Atlanta to Nashville, and then drove a 2018 Chevy Traverse High Country around town once we arrived in Nashville. 

I learned so much about Chevy, both the company and its cars, and left the trip truly impressed by both!

Here are a few things I loved about both of these Chevy cross-over vehicles ::

  • Both the Chevy Equinox and Chevy Traverse were surprisingly roomy inside...much more spacious than I would have anticipated. Our family of four + ALL our luggage fit comfortably inside the Equinox road-tripping to Nashville. My twins commented multiple times about how the backseat felt so big and comfortable! My tall husband also agreed. The Traverse is even roomier inside and offers third row seating!
  • One of the features my family and I loved most about Chevy, is that all Chevy vehicles are equipped with wireless internet, as well as Apple Play. This was a game changer for our family road trip, allowing me to work from my computer from the front seat while Mike drove, and the twins to watch their favorite movies and YouTube videos while en route.
  • Safety! I cannot tell you how impressed I am with Chevy's commitment to safety. I learned about Chevy's new Teen Driver Technology that allows parents to set a speed alert, a volume limit and provides parents with the industry’s first and only in-vehicle report card. As parents, you better believe I want to put my kids in a Chevy when they start to drive! It's pretty remarkable technology!
  • In addition to the Teen Driver Technology, I appreciated how truly "hands-free" and easy is was to navigate everything by voice, without distraction. I have driven quite a few "hands-free" and "voice-activated" cars and these two were the easiest to implement, by far! There is also a Safety Alert Seat, Collision Alert, Lane Assist and a Rear Seat Reminder every-time you exit the car. 

Last but not least, the stylish side of me LOVES two tone interior that was in each crossover. It's so pretty and looks so high-end and luxe!

While in Nashville, we stayed at the one-year-old Holston House Hotel downtown. The hotel is beautiful, and in a walkable distance to so much, including Broadway/Music City venues and the Gulch. The bathrooms and showers are large and  luxurious. The gorgeous rooftop pool and bar are offer amazing views of the entire city, and was a highlight of our stay!

We dined with the Chevy team at Husk, which is a quant farm-to-table eatery, with on-site garden. Literally everything we tasted was fresh, unusual and delicious...and I loved that that the restaurant's building and grounds are full of so much history.

The CMA Fest was so fun! Mike and I sat in the Chevy tent during the afternoon shows on the Riverfront stage and then got to hear several fabulous country artists at the Titans Stadium at night.

If you are on the market for a safe, stylish and reliable crossover, I highly recommend checking out the Chevy Equinox and Traverse! I am confident you will be impressed by the styling, safety and technology features like me!

Thank you, Chevy for an incredible trip! Can't wait to drive another Chevy soon!

Stylishly yours,

Friday Five

LaurenComment

Happy Friday! The kids and I are Hilton Head Island bound today with my mom, sister-in-law and the cousins! It's been such a busy month with end of school. lots of travel, and finishing our home renovation, so I am ready to unplug and RELAX!!

Here are five things I am loving this week ::

1. This flattering ruffle swimsuit. I am OBSESSED with the fit of this suit! It's worth every penny! It is selling out fast in this pretty pale pink, but also available in a classic stripe and also a floral pattern that I love! Sizing with Ted Baker can be a little hard to figure out, so I am wearing a size 2 for reference. 

2. Hammer Made shirts for men. Mike and I visited our local Hammer Made store {at Avalon} and are both the biggest new fans of this men's shop. The premise of Hammer Made is creating shirts that fit custom, fabrics that feel great and a limited-run of each shirt. We were both so impressed by the fit, styles and all the amazing color and print options, as well as the superior service. If you are looking for a last minute Father's Day gift, I highly recommend popping into your local Hammer Made shop or snagging a gift card online. I promise the Dad in your life will be elated by this gift!

3. This little red romper. Who knew a red romper could be so versatile? I wore this breezy romper first on my girl's trip to Palm Beach, and then again last week to the concerts at CMA Fest in Nashville. Love how light and breathable and comfy it is!! I am wearing an XS for reference.

4. The brand-new Draper James Mommy & Me Collection. This super-adorable collection launched this week. If you go to the Draper James website, you just might see some familiar faces!  Both Jack and Lily love the fit and comfort of these outfits...the fit and styling is perfect! 

5. Niks Naks Gifts Travel Bags. Jack and Lily recently designed their own travel bags from Niks Naks Gifts and they couldn't love them more! We are taking their new bags to the beach today, and the size and functionality is perfect. I am teaming up with Niks Naks Gifts and GIVING AWAY a set of these bags over on Instagram @laurenlefevre. Be sure to head over to enter...it's super easy!

Have a fabulous weekend!

The Denim Short Edit

LaurenComment

Denim shorts are a summer essential, because, just like jeans, they GO WITH EVERYTHING and can dress UP or DOWN!

In fact, if there was just one type of shorts that I could have in my wardrobe, it would be denim...preferably a blue denim and a white denim option!

I have been getting SO many questions about my favorite denim shorts this season, and here is my round-up ::

1. The Able Cutoff. I love the mid-length and slouchy "boyfriend" fit of this pair. Plus, this amazing company gives back, making your purchase have a purchase. I sized up one size for a perfectly slouchy fit. {I also love this similar pair from Old Navy.}

2. The AG Bryn Highrise. These are hands-down my favorite denim shorts purchase of the year. They are pricy, but worth every penny. The fit, length and wash are perfect, and the material is soft and stretchy making them ultra-comfy. I like that the darker wash allows them to dress up a bit, too! I am wearing my typical jeans size in this pair.

3. The Red Dress Boutique When I Feel Like It white denim shorts. This $46 white denim pair is a new favorite this season. I sized up {wearing a medium} but the fit is perfect. I like the longer fringe and high-waist fit, and you cannot beat the price!

4. The Old Navy 3" Denim Cutoff.  This pair is the best inexpensive pair I have found! If you are looking for a casual pair that won't break the bank, these are a must-try. I recommend sizing up!

5. The Blank Boyfriend Denim Short. If you are looking for a cuffed denim short, this pair is my favorite. I bought this pair last summer {as you can tell by my short hair!} and still wear them all the time. Blank denim shorts are one of my go-to brands for affordable, great fitting styles. {Blank usually fits true to size.}

 

Stylishly yours,
